Diet and exercise are not always enough to remove stubborn pockets of fat that can develop over time. Did you know your body is genetically disposed to retain pockets of fat? These fatty deposits are often almost impossible to get rid of without help. These fatty deposits also aren’t limited to the abdomen, buttocks, or thighs. It can occur almost anywhere on the body.

Paris physician Yves-Gerard Illouz pioneered liposuction in Europe. Dr. Harvey Zarem worked with Yves-Gerard Illouz and performed the first liposuction in the United States, training Dr. Pearl in the procedure.
